NEW KITCHEN BEAUTY AND DELIGHT
IT'S NICE to dream dreams. It's fun to imagine
changes that would make your kitchen lovelier to
look at, and easier to work in. But why be satisfied
with hopes? Why remain a castle builder? Today —
right now — you can have a Whitehead Kitchen that
brings your Fondest expectations to life. And you
can easily afford that dream-come-true because
it's w^lS within your means!
Imagine a kitchen so wonderfully convenient that
kitchen chores, as you know them today, are prac-
tically abolished! Imagine a kitchen teeming with
electric appliances that work for you at the snap
of a switch — "think out" your day's schedule in ad-
vance! Imagine that same Kitchen with back-saving
Monel working surfaces and time-saving White-
head cabinets. Picture all this, and you visualize a
Whitehead Work-Saving Kitchen, deliberately
built to spare your energy, and to allow new free-
dom for more agreeable interests.
Now think of a kitchen where loveliness and har-
monious color predominate. Fancy the gleaming
lustre of Monel Tops and working surfaces . . . the
sparkling cheer of cabinets, sink and electric ap-
pliances ... the delightful colors that make your
kitchen as charming as a modern living room.
Imagine this, too, and you know why Whitehead
Kitchens are just as lovely as they are efficient.
Efficient, did we say? Actually Whitehead
Kitchens are the nearest approach to perfection
that science knows. They begin by saving your time,
and end by dividing your kitchen hours into mo-
ments to which you actually look forward with
pleasure. There is no place in them for nerve-
racking tension . . . none of the old insistence upon
brawn and muscle and steaming labor! The story of
how these evils have been abolished is told on later
pages. Meanwhile, we give you a single example:
If you have a modern refrigerator, you know how
greatly it has contributed to your peace of mind,
how much its automatic features have meant^to
But — haven't you often longed for a nearby
working surface where you could conveniently pre-
pare salads and cold dishes? Haven't you missed a
convenient compartment where refrigerator utensils
could be easily reached without unnecessary steps?
If only your footprints could talk! What a story of
wasted energy they would tell!
CAN NOW BE
The Whitehead Kitchen, in brief, is a combina-
tion of modern appliances, supplemented by cabi-
net space and working surfaces — with everything so
placed that the entire room is considerate of your
time, constructed to cause you no annoyance, and
designed to coptivate you with its simple charm
and unblemished beauty.
Yet, no matter what the size of your kitchen
may be, no matter what its shape, there is a White-
head work-saving plan that will exactly fit your
needs. For it is true that Whitehead Kitchens are
custom planned, even though they offer you the
economies of standard production.
There was no difficulty, for example, in planning
the three different-sized kitchens which you see,
complete with Westinghouse appliances and White-
head units, on the cover and two facing pages. No
shopping around for matched equipment to occupy
appointed spaces, no expensive cutting down of
Picture one of these kitchens in your own home.
Imagine yourself in the center of such a scene. Then
read, on the following pages, how easy it is to
make that conception come true. It's a story of ab-
sorbing interest — a story that every woman ought
THE sole objecf of modern planning is fo transform the
kitchen from sweatshop to workshop. And so, we divide
your kitchen into major departments where each activity is
centralized — untangled from others. It doesn't take much re-
flection to discover that every kitchen has three centers of
activity — sink, refrigerator and range.
A mere glance at the pictures on these pages shows how
Whitehead has made these three work centers effectively self-
contained by providing just the right amount of storage area
and working space to meet exact working conditions. Here is
the modern medium that makes every woman the real mistress
of her home!
THE BALANCE OF STORAGE
All Whitehead Work-Saving Kitchens incorporating West-
inghouse appliances are planned in accordance with the
"Balance of Storage" principle which was developed by the
Westinghouse Electric and Manufacturing Company after five
years of research and released to the public in 1934. In three
years of actual use, it has proven its reasonable accuracy as
the kitchen storage equipment yardstick of proven value.
It is based on the sole constant factor in a house — the
number of bedrooms. Briefly, it is as follows: The number of
bedrooms establishes the normal occupancy of a residence.
Normal occupancy is based on one person per bedroom for
ail except the master bedroom, which has two persons. The
normal occupancy of a house, therefore, is one more person
than the number of bedrooms. To obtain the actual number of
persons to be provided for, however, two persons per house
must be added to take care of the entertainment factor and the
inevitable accumulation of materials. The actual occupancy,
therefore, is three persons more than the number of bedrooms.
For each of these total persons, 6 square feet of wall cabinet
shelf area is required. The amount of base cabinet storage space
is governed by the fact that base cabinets should be placed
directly underneath all wall cabinets, with the exception of the
space occupied by the major appliances, These two facts give
us the following storage requirements for any residence.
Wall Storage Space Base Storage Spaces
(Minimum Shelf (Minimum Cabinet (Maximum Cabinet
Area) Length) Length)
1 bedroom 24 sq. ft. 3 lin. ft. 4^/2 lin. i\.
2 bedrooms 30 sq. ft. 41/2 lin. ft. 6 lin. ft.
3 bedrooms 36 sq. ft. 6 lin. ft. 71/2 lin. ft.
4 bedrooms 42 sq. ft. 71/2 lin. ft. 9 lin. ft.
5 bedrooms 48 sq. ft. 9 lin. ft. IOV2 lin. ft.
Under the adjacent illustrated centers, these theoretical
storage requirements are translated into ONE arrangement of
standard Whitehead Cabinet units showing the proper propor-
tion of each center for each of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom residences.

BALANCE OF STORAGE
S Bedroom House 3 Bedroom House 4 Bedroom House
One fourth of kitchen wall cabinet shelf area is required at the
refrigerator center. The 7V^, 9 and lOV^ square footages, re-
quired, therefore, respectively for 2, 3 and 4 bedroom houses,
demand a minimum of wall cabinets as shown above. Shelf
area of cabinets above the refrigerator is not counted, being
somewhat inaccessible and intended for infrequently used ma-
terial. These wall cabinets determine minimum base cabinet
linear footages of 2y2/ 3 and SVi, respectively. Proper re-
frigerator capacities are 5, 7 and 9.S cubic feet.
A place for everything, and everything in
its place! Pots and kettles are there in ^
Whitehead Cabinets right next to your
Westinghouse Range. Condiments and
dressings no further away than your
finger tips! Monel working surfaces for
steaming dishes and heated pans — able
and ready to "take it!"
BALANCE OF STORAGE
2 Bedroom House 3 Bedroom House 4 Bedroom House
Wall cabinet shelf area at the range center is supplied by wall
cabinets above the range and adjacent working surface. How-
ever, area above the range remains constant, due to the rela-
tively standard range length, and the determining factor is the
space required over the work surface. The minimum total shelf
areas for 2, 3 end 4 bedroom houses are 111/2, 13 and 14%
square feet respectively, the corresponding base cabinet linear
requirements being 1 V^, S and SV^ feet.
At first glance, it might not seem important to you tKat
f\ Monel is an alloy of two-thirds Nickel and one-
third Copper. The fact that this metal has extreme
durability with the strength and toughness of steel, may
have little significance.
But . . . when you realize that Monel is also rust-
proof and resistant to all food acids and alkalis usually
found in a home, it begins to have interesting possibilities.
And when you also find that Monel is not a coating
but a solid metal all the way through — with nothing to
chip, crack or wear off, then its advantages in your
home become obvious.
All Whitehead Sinks are made of Monel. And when
you realize that your sink performs the hardest job in all
your kitchen — then it becomes clear why the Whitehead
Sink is exactly suited to the modern work-saving kitchen.
Monel is practically immune to wear and tear. That s
why it is widely used in railroad dining car kitchens.
Second, Monel can be kept clean with minimum effort.
That's why such eminent hotels as the Waldorf-Astoria in
New York have found it satisfactory for the kitchen.
Third, the lustre of Monel is as beautiful as old silver —
a beauty that never departs because Monel is a, solid
metal all the way through. Watchcases are now being
made of Monel, because of its beauty.
These are some of the basic reasons why Whitehead
selected Monel for sinks and kitchen working surfaces.
In addition, for your kitchen the Whitehead Monel
Sink has further advantages that you'll find desirable. It
is resilient enough to soften impacts of dishes and to
reduce breakage. You can set hot pans on it without
fear. And it blends beautifully with any color scheme
you may have now — or decide on later. »
For the sink and other working surfaces in your work^
saving kitchen, can you imagine a more capable sub-
stance, a more work-saving material, than Monel?
Integral backsplash construction.
Bowl within 2V2" of front edge. You don't have
to bend over to use it.
Pedestal faucet mounted on sink deck behind
bowl. More practical, more convenient.
Soap dish and glass holder, as well as faucet
platform, pressed right in sink deck. Easy to clean/
no streaking of walls or backsplash.
Flare around bowl insures against water col-
lecting on drainboard.
No grease-collecting cracks or crannies. Alt
corners of the seamless bowls are rounded; the
bottoms are concove.
Fully insulated door and
Recessed toe space.
Welded door and drawer
All frame corners
And when, in addition to Monel sink and working sur-
faces, you can have Whitehead Cabinets of lasting,highest-
grade furniture steel — a material that won't warp and swell
with the weather, that will "take" hard wear indefinitely,
that Is coated with a beautiful baked enamel finish, then
it is easy to see how your entire kitchen becomes a more
satisfying place to work in. Moreover, the same kind of
material, the same finish, that is employed in your modern
'But how does construction save work?" you wonder.
Take a look at the combination of the Whitehead Steel
Cabinet anc/the Whitehead Monel Sink. Note the close-
ness of the bowl to the front of the sink. Notice that
recessed toe space? You don't bend over to work here,
but can stand in a natural position. That one feature
eliminates many a backache.
Work surfaces that reach just the right height from the
floor (36 inches) — drawers that slide without sticking —
doors that open without scraping and close on a bullet
catch that holds them.
No jutting hinges to catch your dress, no loose-jointed
corners to harbor dirt — all corners are welded tight. All
doors and drawer fronts insulated — they work with the
noiselessness of falling snow, but with the resiliency of the
steel of which they are made.
All cabinets, inside and out, are finished absolutely
smooth for cleaning. All handles are of that same rust-
proof metal that forms your work surfaces — MONEL.
The durability of Monel and steel for permanence,
careful construction that eliminates annoyances — White-
head has made sure that you'll enjoy these work-saving
features for years to come!
'LvtJ ft Westinghouse Dishwasher
More than twice as much of your time
is spent at the sink than at any other
center in your kitchen. That's why you
need an efficient, compact unit that will
save you time. That's why Whitehead
created this cabinet sink with its efficient
working area and sufficient cabinet

AMONG some women it is erroneously believed thaf
^\ the Whitehead Double Bow! Sink is built exclusively for
large family homes or for boarding houses and restaurants
where "Kitchen traffic" is extra heavy. But the Double Bowl
Sink is highly desirable for any household — providing, of
course, that there is space enough for installation. For it
stands to reason that where you have twice the number of
conveniences to speed you through your daily tasks in-
volving the sink, there you have twice the efficiency and half
the labor and trouble that such chores ordinarily require.
The duplicate bowls, for instance, permit work on two
separate kitchen jobs simultaneously. Used pots may be
stored in one bowl while vegetables are cleaned in another.
Mixing can be done at one bowl, while cleaning is proceed-
ing at the other. Preparation of recipes requiring cracked ice
may be carried out at one bowl, while the other bowl is in
use for storage or for preparation of other dishes. Many
other double advantages will suggest themselves in actual
The Double Bowls, of course, incorporate all features
of the Whitehead Monel Sink of which you read on preced-

STEEL BASE CABINETS
WHEN you want a utensil or one of the bulk staples (flour, bread,
potatoes, etc.) you want them right at hand — not at some distant
point from where you're working.
Whitehead Steel Base Cabinets, for "on the spot" use around refriger-
ator and range centers, speed up preparation of meals by saving need-
less steps. Because your needs may vary, we furnish two types of
cabinets — the "All Drawer" and Cupboard styles — and each is avail-
able in six different widths.
Here again, by design and construction, Whitehead engineers
visualized your kitchen as a whole! You will Find the cabinets identical
in quality to your Westinghouse Range or Refrigerator. When installed,
they form an operating unit of the same finish, colors, width and working
heights. By increasing the usefulness of your major kitchen appliances
these cabinets make your kitchen really efficient.
All base cabinets are 30V2 " high so that, when assembled with the
recessed sub-base for toe space and the Monel working top, their

Whitehead construction entails an equal amount of care. Drawers
and Cabinets are constructed so that accessories (flour and bread bins,
lid compartment, cutlery trays, etc.) may be readily removed for clean-
ing. Drawers slide easily, doors open and close at finger touch, and the
cabinets themselves present a smooth surface — unbroken except for
handles — and easily kept in "brand new" condition.

where they are needed. How essential a part of your modern kitchen
they really are!

of the base cabinet space your kitchen plan
What a wealth of convenience! What a
world of needed working space! But there are
many other advantages this surface brings to
Since Monel has no harmful effect on foods,
and since it is a solid, non-absorbent material,
you can prepare foods right on the cabinet
top — mixing, kneading, arranging meats,
without fear. At a great saving of time, too!
And since this surface holds no cracks, edg-
ings, ridges, joints or crannies to harbor grease
or food particles, you can clean it quicker
than you can wash a pan. What is more it cleans
more thoroughly. Ordinary wiping with a
damp cloth, and an occasional cleansing with
washing powder, will keep it always new. And
remember, it is a solid material, not a coating.
Yet it has a resilience which saves glass break-
ing and dish chipping — hitherto a "necessary
part" of kitchen experience.
Remember also that your kitchen doesn't
have to conform to some "average" size or
shape. As shown by the table at the right,
there are fourteen lengths available (15" to
114"), designed to fit any combination of
base cabinets you might need.
STEEL SINK FRONTS
Undersink assembly for all standard size sink cabinet ensembles is
shown on pages 8, 9, 10, 11, In any undersink assemblage for inter-
mediate size or custom-built sinks, the Sink Front should be determined
by the overall length of bowl or bowls.
Sink Fronts are available as illustrated in eight sizes (in standard
colors as base cabinets), and this range of sizes if properly
combined with base cabinets and fillers will meet arty undersink cabinet
Sink Fronts are not cabinets but fronts only and are used to conceal
plumbing and to complete base cabinet assembly. Bottom plates, how-
ever, are available so that undersink space may be used for the storage
of pots and pons.

^ALLand UTILITY CABINETS
LJERE are both convenience and utility to the last degree — in wall cabinets
' ' oi varied sizes — that form an integral and desirable part of all three of your
kitchen centers. They provide storage space for goods and staples, glasses and
dishware, condiments and the myriad other items needed immediately above the
range, refrigerator and sink. The kitchens and work centers on pages 2, 3, 4 and 5
show how these cabinets can be grouped to conserve your time and vitality.
Mere photographs, however, cannot portray the study spent in designing
these cabinets to make them extraordinarily useful. Shelves, for instance, are
adjustable at half-inch intervals. The cabinets themselves are 13" deep — adapted
so perfectly to the base cabinets that you can work comfortably without fear of
bumping your head. The eighteen different sizes provide for every con-

Every kitchen has need for special storage space. Whitehead kitchen
planners have not overlooked these necessities. On the opposite page
are shown a number of utility cabinets whose purpose is more specific
than the base and wall cabinets which provide storage space at your
three kitchen centers. Pictured, for instance, are implement cabins*'
that keep out of sight those awkward cleaning implements such as
brooms, mops and pails,- cabinets for clean and soiled linen and for
vegetable storage; special cabinets that make the dead corner under
your working surface completely available, as well as electrically
heated cabinets for towel drying and plate warming.

KITCHEN LOOK LIKE?
THROUGHOUT this book we have presented a picture of the factors that
make for work-saving kitchens — enlightened planning, modern materials,
proper accessories. We have told you that the products you saw pictured were
designed to fit your kitchen. Perhaps you've been wondering how they might
really transform it, and what the cost would be.
Whitehead's kitchen plan goes farther than asking you to accept statements
of fact on faith. You can actually see your kitchen on paper — exactly as it
could look with all of these work-saving features installed. You can compare
that paper plan with your present layout, and see for yourself the inherent
beauty and convenience lying dormant in your kitchen. You can also know
just what such a kitchen costs!
Your Westinghouse representative has a planning sheet and can help you write
down the dimensions of your present kitchen so that kitchen experts may have
the facts for concrete visualization.
These experts will then furnish you with a finished drawing of a modern Monel
kitchen— not anybody's kitchen, but YOURS. An itemized estimate of equip-
ment needed will accompany the plan. It will take into full consideration all
modern appliances you have already installed. Follow the five easy steps
shown at the left, and see just what your kitchen CAN BE.
If your Westinghouse dealer has no planning sheets available he car], secure
one for you. If you prefer you can write Whitehead for its individual sheet^ —
"A Speciol Invitation."
This might be your plan showing how experienced planning
and modern equipment can transform your kitchen into a
room where daily tasks will be a pleasure. ■ Q

A kitchen "must" that has long been a command
of fastidious housewives Is — cleanliness! But when
it comes to clean hot water, there is another point
that is equally essential — an automatic supply!
Given these two, life in your kitchen can flow with-
out interruption, fear or danger.
This might seem like ajfi exaggerated statement.
But if you have ever been plagued with contami-
nated hot water that comes from a rusty tank . . .
if you have ever raged at the long delay some-
times experienced in getting any hot water at all,
whether clean or rusty . . . then you can well ap-
preciate what CLEAN hot water, automatically
delivered, really means.
That's why the Westinghouse Electric Hot Water
Heater pictured at the right is not only fool-proof
in operation, but also embodies a Whitehead
Monel Storage Tank. For Monel cannot rust, will
always deliver immaculate, sparkling hot water so
long as the source is pure.
Whitehead Monel Tanks are guaranteed in
writing for twenty years against rust and corrosion.
Your Westinghouse Dealer will be only too glad
to tell you about them.
The small, table-top Westinghouse Electric Water
Heater pictured below also contains a Whitehead
Monel Tank and, in addition, has a Monel Cabinet
Top. This heater stores up an ample supply of clean
hot water for all kitchen needs,- and is so situated
that the space above it becomes an extra working
surface for you.
